    I'll be staying at the Flamingo for a few nights in December with my GF and my parents. I'll be in a comped room and my parents will be paying some negligible amount for their room (~$7/night). Since they don't have any TR points, and my GF and I have amassed a ton (~130,000) we'd like to pay for all of their "fun" during the trip. If they charge everything to their room, upon check-out, can I hand over my card and have them deduct all their expenses from my stash of TR points? Or, does everything have to be charged to my room?

    Thanks!

    Easily done...in fact have done it myself on a few trips. Helped pay for our kids rooms/food when they didn't have enough comps. Just go to the check-out desk with them.

    We have done it two ways. Extra room booked in our name, then pay with points.

    Extra room booked in their room, then stop by and pay with points.

    I've never paid for a room with points but food is easy. You just have to be around when they are ready to check out or pay the bill.
